Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Clean up your lives, you sinners, and clear your minds, you doubters. Be miserable, mourn, and cry. Turn your laughter into mourning and your joy into gloom. Humble yourselves in the Lord’s presence. Then he will give you a high position (James 4:8-10 GW).
The peace you need is found in prayer.
Scrooge said, “Speak peace to me, Marley.”
Have you ever looked to others, or even to entertainment to lift you up when you’re feeling down? I’ve watched a little Andy Griffith and laughed to feel better.
When we learn to process in prayer with God, we won’t need someone else to lift us up. We can go to our prayer closet and pour out to God all this stuff that rest within us. If you feel rejected, pour out your misery to God.
War is settled in the prayer room.
If you’re really in the storm right now, remember your fight is not with flesh and blood. You can encounter negative attitudes that are warlike. A spirit of war comes behind that.
I pray that God will give you peace as you release whatever you’re dealing with. Take authority over the spirit of division. May you feel powerful instead of powerless. God is with you. May Jesus protect you and give you peace.
